As the epidemic terrorizes the quiet secluded village of Sotoba, three women have found themselves amidst the escalating crisis. Nao Yasumori is tormented by visions of the deceased; Kanami Yano must keep a secret at risk of losing a loved one; and Motoko Maeda goes through insurmountable grief as the mysterious illness spreads throughout her family.

With rising tensions testing the limits of family relationships, even the smallest of mistakes can easily sever the ties that bind .

Shiki Specials is just a two episode long, but somehow it manages to do something that none other horror, mystery or whatever kind of anime category could do in just 2 episodes.

Story - 9.5

If you haven't seen Shiki then watching this by itself won't work. All of the storyline is in the original series and without watching Shiki you won't understand a thing so go watch Shiki before this. As to not spoil it for you I'm gonna say that it is thought provoking and scary - pretty much like Shiki, but with a bit more of scary in it.

Visuals - 9

Jealousy. That is what drived these specials' main characters to do something they shouldn't have. But if you were in their position, would you have done anything different?

Story: 9 - These specials can be considered as part of the story but also can be called a side story as they focus on some of the supporting characters of Shiki. The first episode features Nao Yasumori who got infected and 'died' and after coming back as a shiki. She does something she shouldn't have which ended with drastic results. The second episode features a woman named Kanami Yano who's mother got bitten and to prevent her read more

The shiki specials were really good enough said.
I recommend watching these in order because they explain what happens to some of the characters and gives the story alot more depth. 20.5 i'd say is the standout, it focus's on Nao, one of the show's more interesting characters and it shows alot about her intensions that is in kindof a black and white area. When you start realizing what's inside her head you notice it's more of a grey area and not just black and white. I can't go into spoilers but i'd watch it for yourselves. 21.5 is interesting as well, it get's a bit read more

This specials you have to see when you've already finished Shiki but... theyre not to be taken slightly since theyre are proof that everyone in that town had something to do with the outcome of the series.
With that being said here are some points i'd like you to know so you can make the desicion werther to watch these or not.

Since i guess that you have already watched the full series, you have already compenetrated with the situation and you know the feelings of those who you will see involved in these two specials.

The lives of those who are victims of pandemonium are portrait in read more
